    What headset for Karate Monkey Stock rigid fork?

    I just bought a Karate Monkey frameset, and I intend to use the stock rigid fork that it comes with. It is the newest model of Karate Monkey.

    I do not want to spend a lot of money on the headset, I know, I will be sacrificing some ride quality with a cheap headset, but I am a college student with very little money so I want to buy as cheap as possible. I can upgrade later.

    Anyways, based on the Surly website, I can use the Cane Creek 40 ZS44/EC44/30, model HD2410. However, the cheapest I can find that headset for sale is $70. Obviously, that is not super expensive for a headset, but I want to spend less.

    Is there is a compatible 10-series Cane Creek Headset or other cheaper headset that will allow me to use the stock rigid steel fork with my Karate Monkey frame?

    Thank you!

    John

    Yup Cane Creek 10, FSA is another headset brand that have some lower end cheaper headsets. You just need to know if your steerer tube is straight or tapered and then look up the headsets that match it. I'm sure it would be tapered since it is the newest model.
